Increase Maple Syrup Production with Dry Claw Vacuum Pumps
Production for maple syrup typically happens during the later winter months, as freezing nights and warm days are needed in order to induce sap flows. The conventional way to collect the sap is to drill holes and hang buckets on the maple trees, however, this is time consuming and therefore less efficient. Today’s use of plastic tubing with a vacuum pump to extract the sap has enabled increased production and ensures that maple syrup arrives cold and clear to the sugar house when collection is complete.
